You Might Help Find Steve Fossett
The search for Steve Fossett got some potent help from above today, and you might be able to help. DigitalGlobe, which supplies many of the images from space for Google Earth, has fresh imagery of the search area and that's enabled the activation of something called the Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Essentially, anyone with a computer can conduct a pixel-by-pixel search for Fossett. The site is self explanatory. The system is set up to allow masses of humans, able to differentiate objects (like airplane wreckage on a mountainside) and make judgment calls that computers don't do well. (Go here to help.)
Fossett departed at 8:45 a.m. Monday from the Flying M Ranch in Yerington, Nev., but did not file a flight plan so it is unknown where he was going.

OK, John, now that you guys have had your little fun, Mrs Fossett wants here husband back.
Tell the guys to dump him outside the main gate. I'm sure he's learned his lesson about overflying keep out areas.
So Bedlam here has effectively gotten NUWC off the hook by getting in the first shot, which included John Lear and making it all one ha ha ha as far as NUWC is concerned and feigning concern for Steve and Mrs. Fossett.
This is in no way meant as any disrespect for Steve as I know he would have wanted it this way.
Most likely: he had an unfortunate mechanical failure and went down in a lake. Take your pick: Lahontan Reservoir, Pyramid, Walker, Mono or Tahoe. No wreckage, no signals.
My money's on Pyramid.
